Immortal in Death by J. D. Robb
Getting married was murder. Eve wasn't sure how it had happened in the first place. She was a cop, for God's sake. Throughout her ten years on the force, she'd firmly believed cops should stay single, unencumbered, and focused utterly on the job. It was insane to believe one person could split time, energy, and emotion between the law, with all its rights and wrongs, and family, with all its demands and personalities.
Immortal in Death is the 3rd book in J. D. Robb's series featuring Eve Dallas and Roarke. As always, aptly narrated by Susan Ericksen. And, in case you were wondering, Nora Roberts (the author behind the name of J. D. Robb) wanted to reach a different set of readers with these books. Apparently, it wasn't until about #9 that the 'secret' came out. In this tale, Eve and Roarke are planning their wedding. Well, Roarke is planning it - Eve is busy with murder, as usual.

Eve is determined to find the real killer because she knows that it's not Mavis. We get to know more about several of the secondary characters, and this is the book that Officer Delia Peabody makes her debut as Eve's assistant. I'm happily doing listen/read combos on these books.

Beneath the facade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming obsession for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs could be found to fulfill any desire—for a price…
